As the tadpole grows in the egg, it will fill the egg and assume a C position. When the tadpole’s tail is straight again, you know it has hatched. It is now time to take the tadpole out of the petri dish. We use a turkey baster to get the tadpoles out. We then place the tadpoles individually in tadpole cups. We add 2″-3″ of Reverse Osmosis water, a piece of indian almond leaf and a small piece of Java Moss. After a day or two, we fill the cup up entirely. If you do not have a Reverse Osmosis System, we recommend that you use some of the water treatment products.
We feed my tadpoles a variety of tadpole foods. We feed once a week and NEVER do water changes.
Once the tadpole sprouts front legs, We pour out all of the water, get rid of the java moss, and add an inch or so of Reverse Osmosis water back into the cup. We then place the cup between two of the wires in the wire shelf. This creates a sloped area where the frogs can climb out. When we see a frog completely out of the water, we move the froglet into a froglet tub.
Froglets get put into tubs in pairs. The tubs are a 128 oz container with sphagnum moss, some terrarium plants, and a film cannister. We seed all tubs with springtails so the froglets can have a variety of food. We feed all froglets every other day.
